For her Carnegie Hall recital debut, American soprano Lisette Oropesa performs a distinctive program of works by Cuban, French, and Italian composers. Carnegie Hall audiences will recognize Oropesa from recent performances with The Met Orchestra (as soloist in Brahms’s German Requiem and concert arias by Mozart). To hear her spectacular voice in the intimacy of Zankel Hall will be a special experience. She is joined by fellow Metropolitan Opera veteran Ken Noda, a renowned concert pianist and one of the finest vocal accompanists.
